THE PAJAMA GAME - Scottsdale Musical Theater Company - July 11-21, 2019
Music and Lyrics by Richard Adler & Jerry Ross
Book by George Abbott & Richard Bissell
Based on the novel "7½ Cents" by Richard Bissell
The Pajama Game, based on the 1953 novel "7½ Cents by" Richard Bissell, is one of Broadway's most beloved musicals, winning the Tony Award for Best Musical and Best Choreography by Bob Fosse. With music and lyrics by the Broadway team of Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, The Pajama Game story deals with labor troubles in a pajama factory, where workers' demands for a seven-and-a-half cent raise are going unheeded. In the midst of this ordeal, love blossoms between Babe, the grievance committee head, and Sid, the new factory superintendent. The Pajama Game - written by the same creative team as Damn Yankees - features some popular hits of the late 1950’s including “Hey There”, “Hernando’s Hideaway” and “Steam Heat”.
SMTC is excited to announce complete casting for its upcoming production of the classic musical, The Pajama Game. Local Valley news and weatherman Cory McCloskey leads the cast as Sid Sorokin, the new supervisor at a Cedar Rapids pajama factory in the throes of a labor dispute...who falls in love with the head of the union’s grievance committee! Performances will take place at the Tempe Center for the Arts.
